Harbour Update – posted 30/10/14

Its well worth continuing to check tit flocks at the moment as the Yellow-browed Warbler wave continues with one arriving on Brownsea today, another at Studland yesterday and at-least another five or six elsewhere in the county. I still haven’t managed to sound record one yet, but learning their call is one of the best ways to track them down. Firecrest are also very prominent at the moment with a minimum of 13 reported yesterday with 3 at Hatch Pond, 9 in and around the Studland Peninsular and 1 at Lytchett Bay. A Brambling was feeding near Middle Beach, Studland. At Holes Bay there were 320+ Black-tailed Godwit, 600+ Wigeon, 150+ Redshank and 2 Stonechat. A Ring Ouzel was at Middlebere briefly. A flock of 40 Spoonbill were on Brownsea with the usual good numbers of Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit, Greenshank, Spotted Redshank and Redshank. Apparently, big numbers of thrushes entered the UK this AM further north, meaning we could potentially see the first big arrivals of Fieldfare tomorrow morning and over the coming days with more Redwing too.
